For an overview of planned events during the Orientation Week, please see here.
The Orientation Week for all new students (which coincides with the last week of the Orientation Weeks for international students) takes place one week before classes start each semester. In the course of this week, we offer info events and introductory workshops where you can get to know the university’s IT services as well as our virtual learning environments, Stud.IP and ILIAS.
You should have received your username and password along with the enrolment documents from the Student Registration Office after matriculation. You will need these credentials in order to access the University’s IT services.
The multifunctional CampusCard not only serves as a student ID. It is also used for paying in the refectory or in cafeterias, print and copy documents, borrow books from the library, and to use lockers and access systems. On top of that, it also serves as a bus pass.
All new students are given a University e-mail address, which is specified in the enrolment documents. Example: email@example.com. The University will send important notifications and programme-relevant information to this e-mail address. If you wish, you can set up a forwarding rule to your own private e-mail account.
You can print, copy or scan documents with the printer-copiers located throughout the campus. When sending a print job from within the University’s network, you will only need your CampusCard to print your documents with any of the campus printer-copiers. You can top up your CampusCard with print credits at top up stations on campus.
You can also send a print job from your personal computer when connected to the university’s network (OpenVPN, eduroam). For this, you will need your CampusCard and have to have the printer driver for the printer-copiers installed.
In addition to tethered access at the computer rooms, you can also access the university network via WiFi, logging into 'CampusUniPassau' and 'eduroam'.
